Inside on a Rainy Day
Spice up a rainy day indoors by turning household tasks into learning games!
A basket of laundry doesn’t exactly sound like a learning opportunity, but for little kids, that’s exactly what it can be! Together, watch Elmo, Abby, and Elmo’s Daddy discover the fun and learning that can happen on a rainy day…even when Daddy’s busy doing housework.
Then, next time you’re busy at home, find a learning opportunity and invite kids to participate. Kids might sort, count, organize, fold, identify patterns—just like the friends in the video.
